The Downfall of Paris on Marimba and Snare
Through e-mail discussions with the local PAS chapter president regarding the upcoming Vermont Day of Percussion, I learned of the world-renown percussionist, Jane Boxall.
While checking out her MySpace site I found a video of her on marimba with a snare drummer (her husband) performing “The Downfall of Paris”! What a surprise!
I subsequently e-mailed her asking for her approval for having the video on the USARD website.
She replied positively and remarked that the video was taken at the Chicago Drum Show earlier in the year and that its quality is dubious. Further she explained that she and her husband enjoy seeing and hearing rudimental drumming.
I enjoyed it – I hope you do.
